escalates the fight on the w economy. is the debt ceiling negotiable? your thoughts? send us a tweet or post your comment on facebook. you can also send us an e-mail. president obama held his last official news conference of the first term yesterday in the east room of the white house. here's what he had to say on the debt ceiling debate. [video clip] >> republicans and congress have two choices. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect ransomed in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well-being of the american people well-being is not a leverage to be used. the full faith and credit of the united states is not a bargaining chip. they had better choose quickly, because time is running short. the last time republicans in congress even flirted with this idea, r. triple-a credit rating was downgraded for the first time in our mystery, our businesses created the few jobs in any month in nearly the past three years, and the whole fiasco added to the deficit. ho
coming up is the so-called debt ceiling -- something most americans hadn't even heard of before two years ago. i want to be clear about this. the debt ceiling is not a question of authorizing more spending. raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it simply allows the country to pay for spending that congress has already committed to. these are bills that have already been racked up and we need to pay them. so while i'm willing to compromise and find common ground over how to reduce our deficits, america cannot afford another debate with this congress about whether or not they should pay the bills they've already racked up. if congressional republicans refuse to pay america's bills on time, social security checks and veterans' benefits will be delayed. we might not be able to pay our troops, or honor our contracts with small business owners. food inspectors, air traffic controllers, specialists who track down loose nuclear material wouldn't get their paychecks. investors around the world will ask if the united states of america is, in fact, a safe bet. markets could go h
in exchange. >> that's a warning shot from president obama on the debt ceiling deadline, making it clear he's not going to negotiate with the gop insisting on using it, but the president facing a gop unwilling to negotiate with him. a in lawmakers is newly elected congressman ted yoho, a tea party backed conservative. great to have you here. we appreciate your time. congratulations, as you were just recently sworn in. you have made a real name for yourself so far by saying that you really want to make john boehner accountable for what he's doing there on the hill. our first team is reporting that the chief goal of obama's press conference was to -- for raising or not raising the debt ceiling. then this morning former house speaker newt gingrich weighed in saying the gop congress is coming out a loser. >> it's a threat they can't sustain. no one is going to default. no one is going to allow the united states to not pay its bills. no one is going to accept the economic costs. it rallies the entire business community to the president's side. i don't think we should pick fights where we are in
armstrong go to jail? the kudlow report begins right now. >> here is my quick take on his debt ceiling stand off. do not mess with the credit rating with the united states of america. however, you can race the debt ceiling and cut spending at the same time. on top of that, you kcan fix th $2 trillion situation. that is my take. charlie wrangle from new york and i begin with you. i don't understand why that can't be done. you can get that done. you are one of my buddies, but i object to you using the default. you have enough cash flow and the vast majority. i hate that argument. i know. but it is wrong to call it default. >> why not avoid default all together. because i believe it distorts the rest of the debate the good congressman and i need to have. >> cutti inting spending, i don want to get hung up on default. it is all bad. welcome back, sir, why can't we have our cake and eat it too? why can't we compromise with spending cuts at the same time too? >> we can do it as long as we recognize it is apples and oranges. our obligation has nothing to do with our inability to govern our own spen
more people care about that issue than the debt ceiling. >> bill: they get too full of themselves. the problem with the front row particularly the press corps is they represent different networks. they all want to talk about let's say, for example guns. they all want to be on camera asking the question about guns and it doesn't matter if somebody else has already asked the question five different times in five different ways, they're still going to ask it so they can get on camera. that's what's wrong with the press briefings. >> thank you very much for your tweet. >> if you go to the newseum web site and you look at what the country is talking about it is a rich quilt of different issues, different ideas that people around this country are discussing. and the washington press corps questions of one or two topics doesn't even big to cover -- begin to cover what reporters around this country are reporting on, talking about. that disconnect is really jarring, i think. >> bill: it is jarring. i remember as a reporter in los angeles and a comment tater in los angeles, covering preside

nothing and there are also no meetings even planned regarding the debt ceiling and the inevitable issue that is are faced by those who need to make the decisions for us. >> yeah. we have got this triple deadline coming up. and nobody -- everybody says they don't want to do it at the last minute the way we did with the fiscal cliff but nobody seems to be talking about it yet. you don't have negotiations started. granted we are in a bit of a holding pattern with the inauguration coming up and maybe things start to happen after that but nobody seems to be jumping in proactively for a solution to these issues that are coming up and that's because they're tough decisions. they're hard. and nobody has something that is universally palatable ready to off offer. >> with that said, will we see a separation of spending cuts the republicans say they want to desperately and separate it from the debt ceiling? as the president said, you can't run out on a meal you have eaten. this is not new debt. this is bills we have acquired. the government and this country must be obligated to do the same. >> wel

we're going to do, we're going to pass a three or four-month extension of the debt ceiling. then we're going to get into a fight on the sequester and hold the line of the sequester. this is a promise the leadership is making to us. as long as they keep that promise i think many conservatives will be ok with that. then when we get to the debt ceiling fight we're going to ask for at a minimum the one--- the one-for-one cuts that come from the boehner rule for any long-term debt ceiling extension system of if we look at that, it means that in 10 to 15 years, with very little help from the democrats, we can achieve a balanced budget which is much better than even the 23- to 27 -- better than the 23 years to 27 years and obviously better than the never balancing budget obama and the democrats have proposed for the last four years. so you look at all the data out there. all the public opinion polls say that the american people think we're spending too much money. that the american people think that we are taxing too much. but the problem is that as republicans, i think this goes to what r

separate from the debt ceiling. >> raising the debt ceiling does not authorize us to spend more. all it does is say that america will pay its bills, and we are not a deadbeat nation. >> clearly house speaker john boehner thinks differently. he responded by saying, quote, the american people do not support raising the debt ceiling without reducing government spending at the same time. >>> these pens are designed to be used only by one person, but an investigation discovered that many of them were used on multiple people. >>> are you in hawaii or going there anytime soon? surfers, beware. check out this video. it's a real-life jauss. two sharks were swimming dangerously close to the show. can you believe it? look at that. you could wade in and be bitten, eaten. last year there were a total of 11 shark attacks in hawaii. >> that's what i call dangerously close. >> oh, my goodness. >> so some people in the southeast waking up to the dual danger of flooding and ice. alexandra steele in the weather center. good morning. >> good morning, guys. each snow potentially for you around new york c

. there seems to be almost universal support. >> you're also talking about the debt ceiling, three-month extension on that. >> the interesting development is that house republicans had a retreat in williamsburg and just came out with word they want to extend the debt ceiling for about two, three months because they don't -- they want to have a battle over spending with the president but not over the possibility of default. they know that would tank the economy. it would rile up the financial marks. i think they'll kick that down -- markets. i think they'll kick that down the road and have a fight over sequestration. one way or another they'll have a logger head with the president when it comes to cuts and dramatic spending. >> your power play of the week? >> reverend ruiz leon, the church of the president. i've lived in washington 30 plus years and never been inside the church, driven past it plenty. beautiful place. presidents have gone there since 1816. president obama will go there for his preinaugural worship service monday. >> speaking of inauguration, big plans for ask you? a
the congress you are going to see on debt ceiling. the republicans in the house are talking about a short-term view of that. it certainly would avoid disaster coming up for the end of march. you will still have the issue of raising it for the long term. on the republican side there is no real appetite to do that without the reforms. same for gun-control. a lot of the agenda items that the president announced last week, the 23 executive actions you will see taken piece by piece. the easiest one to accomplish will be those that come forward the fastest, and the same for immigration reform. there is a lot that could be done and a comprehensive approach, but i think you will see that come down to the very bare minimum that both sides are able to agree on. >> let me follow up with a vote that will happen on wednesday. that will give another three months and the extension of the debt limit. weird is that position? why delay that for three months? where does that put them in march and april? >> this is an acknowledgement that they have lost the debt ceiling essentially as a leveraged tool they h

credit status if there's a delay in raising the debt ceiling. the federal government is expected to exceed its borrowing limit by march, unless congress acts. if fitch does downgrade u.s. debt, it would join standard and poor's, which took that action in 2011 during the last debt ceiling debate. the u.s. house moved to pass a hurricane sandy relief bill this evening. $17 billion would go for immediate recovery in the affected northeastern states. another $33 billion is for long- term spending. some republicans argued that much of the money isn't for emergency relief at all. california's tom mcclintock called for stripping that funding out. >> according to the congressional budget office, more than 90% of this money won't even be spent this year. that's not emergency relief. $16 billion is to quintuple the size of the community development block grant program. that's the slush fund that pays for such dubious projects as doggie day care centers and doesn't even have to be spent in the hurricane area. >> sreenivasan: other republican >> sreenivasan: other republicans joined with mos

, and what's on the agenda is devising some sort of house bill that would raise the debt ceiling and pair it with entitlement or other spending cuts. you know, there's differing theories about how long, you know, one or two years which is what the president talked about. we've heard a couple of months, we've heard four years. you know, but there's sort of a principle that they're using which is equal amount of deficit reduction for the amount the debt ceiling is raised. so if you're going to raise it by, you know, $3 or $4 trillion, we're talking about sort of massive reforms probably along the lines of the paul ryan budget which cut $5 trillion in spending. you'd see things like block granting of medicaid and food stamps and, you know, i don't think that they would put in what's called a voucher system or premium support system for medicare. that was, you know, pretty much trounced during the election. but we'll see. you need something with big numbers in order to -- [inaudible] more or less it's probably a smaller debt ceiling increase. and they also need to decide what to do about two
will increase the debt ceiling on a short-term basis, but the senate has to pass a budget which it has not done in four years and if you don't do that then you don't get pay for congress. that has been criticized by democrats, but the issue here is where house republicans want to fight the administration on spending, and they want to force the president's hand for more spending and they have opportunities to do it, and the debt ceiling is one they don't want to fight over, and it's a bad result politically and economically for the country, and the sequestration, and they can tie some of the efforts to force the president's hand to cut spending to the other fights. >> the gop proposal that just came out calls for the house and senate to have some type of budget by mid april but doesn't include spending cuts, so can we view it as a concession on the republican's side. >> they don't want to get the blame for a potential default and what that would mean for the economy, and they would rather fight on things like shutting the governor down or automatic spending cuts going into effect, and they think
borrowing limit as soon as mid-february. so president obama will request congress to raise the debt ceiling once again. this is the fifth time the president has -- president obama has requested the debt limit be raised to allow the federal government to borrow and spend more money. but what is the point of even having a debt limit if congress simply extends the treasury's borrowing capacity each time the limit is reached? while some may say that it's irresponsible not to raise the debt limit, our nation finds itself at a point of such indebtedness that it is equally as irresponsible to extend the debt ceiling without significant reductions in federal spending. i voted against an increase to the debt limit two years ago and intend to vote against another increase unless we substantially change the way that government does business by reducing federal spending. in addition to it being alleged that it's irresponsible not to raise the debt ceiling, sometimes it's suggested that it's not compassionate to not spend money. where is the compassion in spending money that we don't have that's being b
the debt ceiling, the first question he got from the press today was about guns. >> the vice president and number of members of my cabinet went through a very thorough process over the last month, meeting with a lot of stakeholders in this, including the nra. listened to proposals from all quarters, and they've presented me now with a list of sensible common sense steps that can be taken to make sure that the kinds of violence we saw at newtown doesn't happen again. i'm going to be meeting with the vice president today. i expect to have a fuller presentation later in the week to give people some specifics about what i think we need to do. my starting point is not to worry about the politics. my starting point is to focus on what makes sense, what works. what should we be doing to make sure that our children are safe. >> the president and his press conference today didn't announce this as if it were news, but this is news what he just said. remember, when president obama asked joe biden to head up this effort looking at potential reform, remember, he initially said the effort was suppos

in exchange for cooperation on the debt ceiling. republican senator roy blunt of missouri says president obama should study president lincoln. >> when hard things get done, they get done because a president decided he was going to do what was necessary to get them done and that means you got to realistically look at the world you live in and the washington you've been given by the american voters to work with. >> reporter: and that means a divided congress and another election season not far away. melanie alnwick, fox 5 news. >> let's bring in now fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin on this discussion about the inauguration and expand a little bit on some of the president's accomplishments and his challenges coming up his second term, mark. let's start with his accomplishments in the first four years. what would you say some of the biggest accomplishments the president made? >> you have to start with health insurance. that's when had he a democratic -- when he had a democratic house and senate. that was his chief legislative goal and he accomplished that. killing osama bin laden, maybe it i

's some type of deal on not slamming-- or raising the debt ceiling, just the tone, jay carney saying he's encouraged and the republicans trying to beat a deadline and things might be different. >> sure, i don't think anyone in this town is under any illusion, and magically the republicans and democrats are coming together and solve all of these big problems and singing kumbayah. but there are a host of things where they want to come together and find some common ground and the debt ceiling might be one of them, but the republicans have some caveats to that and want to make sure that the senate democrats pass a budget. something they haven't done in the last four years and put some heat on the democrats right there. even as both sides are talking about coming together on some of this, there's going to be an edge to it as well. let's not forget the president is still dealing with high unemployment. and wants to focus on gun control, immigration reform and get those done in the second term and still got things left over from the first term. stubbornly high unemployment said he's going to c

in the last few days, the republicans have made some offers with respect to the debt ceiling and i've seen some republicans talking about immigration reform. so maybe we are on a roll. but i wouldn't bet on it yet. >> i, too, noticed those offers on things like the debt ceiling. but, general, what you've -- there's the real first couple of new york and washington, d.c. beyonce and jay-z entering. that will get a lot of attention. we just missed james taylor coming down the stairs. general, there's just flat out hatred out there, too. there is nastiness out there in the land. there's nastiness between these two parties. there's the president and mrs. carter. how do we fix that? let's especially go to the republican party. they've got -- they've been -- they've been caucusing. they've been quite literally in retreat these past few days. house republicans. what do they do to widen, if it is in their interests, widen their doorway to membership, to entry? >> well, as i've been saying and sat with david gregory the other day, the party is not where the american people have been in recent years.
. the vice president put in charge with republicans on the debt ceiling and brought in most recently for these 24 proposals that have been put forward on the gun control. and the vice president brokered that last minute deal being avoided at the end of the year. when you look at the obama presidency and four years from now when this history is going to be written, vice president joe biden is going to fill a roll in that history that is particular to him and larger than any other vice president we have seen before. really reinvented the vice president before that, they did not have all that much to do besides check on the health of the president. but really, the modern era now we've seen this change from administration to administration and clearly vice president joe biden at this point has demonstrated the height of that, the political confident and advisor and foot soldier with house republicans here who have said they have major problems with a lot of the things this administration is laying out. >> tom is live right there front row seat for the swearing in ceremony at the capitol.
's another cmore c. house republicans agreed to raise the debt ceiling but just until april and insisted if democrats don't layout how they cut spending passing a senate budget by april law americas should not get paid. >> not only is it dramatic but it's effective and maybe it's the penalty phase that has been missing around this town for too long to get people to do what they are supposed to do. >> a tough beginning to the obama second term guaranteed before it even starts. i am steve handlesman wbal-tv 11 news. >> the governor may have been a special guest but one boy briefly stole the show. the governor addressed the students as the students were standing behind him. as you can see in this video one guy started swaying took a deep breath and passed out. he was carried out of the room for a brief time. when he returned he became the man of the hour as the governor gave him a little one-on-one time. >> poor little guy. >> we are assuming he's okay. >> maybe he's had the flu which apparently to fight the flu doctors are now using bugs to fight the flu bug. how a new vaccine was develope
. president, what's the deal with the debt? i've been hearing a lot about the debt ceiling. what's my family's share? i'm just a kid. when i'm a grownup, i understand it could be hundreds of thousands of dollars. could you guys please cut spending now? >> brian: if you want to know if that is going to happen today, see if rand paul's grandson will be in there or somebody like that. if there's a republican child or michael j. fox's character, michael keating. >> gretchen: that would be a good one. let's talk about what the new york state has done now and governor cuomo. he immediately went on the attack to try and pass very expansive gun law legislation because many people are saying he wants to run for president next time around and he also was very concerned about the issue. but some people are saying this morning that what they passed last night is full of holes. we want to show you a graphic of a particular kind of weapon that has been banned, a rifle. this is a baneli 1 rifle. the reason it's banned is because you can see how you hold on to the gun there. that's called a military style g
republicans the week before any default triggered by refusing to lift the debt ceiling really would be the best outcome if we could stick together in weather the storm. i was convinced her deficits had become so severe that are national credit rating would be downgraded anyway and economy to to flounder. the shock therapy of the fall could be a thing that we can congress. unless we stick together, it made little sense for me are new members to mount it, cause he mission to delay the vote and force you to follow. >> guest: first of all, ask yourself the question, when was the last time the debt limit was not increased? so do we have a tip in made in country? the answer to that is the reason were in trouble because we essentially dull. every time i pass that lets you basic, they get a raise. we've never acted responsibly to trim the waste in government. but here's the other point i made. we are going to. and here's the debt unaware going to run into in a sweat "the debt bomb" is all about. there will come a time in the near future where people won't loan us money because their expecta
